Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a very pale straw colour with subtle green highlights to the edges.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has lifted aromas of lemon and lime combined with subtle background notes of lemongrass.

Wine Palate
On release, the wine displays an abundance of citrus fruit flavours including a hint of pithy lemon character. There is richness to the mid palate which is well balanced by a crisp acid backbone. A hint of kaffir lime and lemongrass is evident on the back palate and the finish shows great persistence.

Cellaring Notes
This wine has been crafted for immediate enjoyment but will also reward cellaring under ideal conditions up to and possibly beyond 2015.
